L'INTERNATIONALE all 6 verses sung in French with French and English Lyrics

Thank all of you for giving this video over 60,000 hits, by far the most of any of mine. Of course, the others are of no real importance, more just for fun things. This one is public service.


The anthem of the workers, the socialists, the communists, the anarchists and the progressive movement sung as it was written by Eugène Pottier.

I first heard this wonderful recording of L'Internationale, the immortal song of the Workers, on the channel of iwanttobelieve. I think the addition of on-screen lyrics and a reasonably good translation will help in the understanding and appreciation of the message that is being conveyed. I can find no sung translation that does justice to the power and the poetry of the original French. I have resisted the temptation of adding pictures so that the words can speak for themselves without distraction. It's worth googling on Marc Ogeret, though; he's pretty awesome-looking.

I was inspired to actually go to the work of putting this together now by the current Worldwide Workers' Rebellion of 2011. I know the definition of "worker" is being stretched to include all of the 99% of us who are not super rich financially. The more the merrier, I guess.

From early childhood, a goal of mine is to be a working class hero. This video is a small step in that direction .

May we live to see the day when the sun will shine always.

I also use L'Internationale as the background of my video for INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2013. I hope you enjoy that video, too. It's not a masterpiece, but I had fun making it. And it makes a point.
